Lightship 95 Recording Studio Introduction

Lightship 95 

Welcome to our solar-powered analogue & digital recording facility onboard a converted lightship, permanently moored at Trinity Buoy Warf, East London.

The studio has been built in the hull of the boat, which used to house a huge diesel engine. There is a 300sq ft purpose built control room that is daylit through four portholes. The control room is based around a fantastic sounding Calrec S2 console, ATC SCM45A monitors, Protools 2023 and a selection of world-class pre-amps and outboard from Neve, API, Empirical Labs, Universal Audio, Manley and many more. There is a direct line of sight from the control room through to the 520sq ft live room, which is also naturally lit and boasts a high ceiling, classic 80's finish and excellent acoustics. The room can easily accommodate a whole band for live tracking, almost every visitor is surprised by how spacious the room is. There is an excellent collection of classic microphones from RCA, Neumann, Coles and many others and a great choice of backline including a large range of Fender amps, vintage Ludwig drums, as well as a beautiful Wurlitzer, upright piano and a Hammond organ with Leslie. The recording space also includes a large isolation booth and a unique built-in reverb chambers

On land across the drawbridge, there is free parking and a popular cafe. You'll also have panoramic views of the famous Thames docklands... here is a special studio in a special location...
